BRIDGES

At Pearl Gallery and Framing

Thu, Oct 05 to Tue, Oct 31

show

Paintings & Prints by Christopher Mooney
Artist Reception October 5th 5 – 9 p.m. (With Live Classic Jazz Music)

For the month of October Pearl Gallery & Framing is excited to showcase BRIDGES, an exhibition of the work of Christopher Mooney. Mooney has made substantial contributions to the visual documentation of urban landmarks in Portland. As a painter of Oregon’s transportation architecture, Mooney reveals Portland as a city of rivers and bridges, showcasing the character, function and form of these icons. He is fascinated by the way in which geometric shapes of steel girders frame the landscape of the city.

People cross bridges every day by foot, bike, automobile and train and with each new crossing we are able to witness the powerful engineering achievements these feats of architecture represent. The bridges of Portland improve commerce, connect communities, and unite the city. Mooney honors bridges by painting them from unusual points of view, giving them dramatic perspectives, rendering them both realistic and abstract. Light plays an important role in his paintings, illuminating structures, casting shadows, and encouraging viewers to see bridges in new ways, directing our attention to details that we might not otherwise observe.
